Overview

Closed for 24 hours after rain.
This fast trail winds mostly through the forest. There is a decent sized pond towards the end of the trail that you get to view from most angles.
Features: Fall Colors — Lake — River/Creek — Wildlife

Need To Know

It's run clockwise for mountain bikes.

Description

From the trailhead you can follow the clockwise loop the mountain bikers take. There are three main loops that comprise this trail; Roller Coaster, Main, and Lake. About a quarter mile into the trail you can take a left at the silo for the Roller Coaster loop. If you opt out, hang a right to continue along the Main loop. Mostly switch backs along this course with a few small climbs. A few small signs mark the beginning of the Lake loop at the back of the park. Take a left there to continue along the Lake loop, or stay right to continue along Main for the half mile trip back to the parking lot.

Flora & Fauna

Deciduous forest and the occasional turtle or black rat snake.
